I would love to hear from you.


  1. I want to make a Dresden plate table runner, 28" across with a 4-5 center. How long do the blades have to be? I have a Fons & Porter acrylic wedge.

    1. Marilyn, you are set to "no reply" so I hope you get this since I couldn't email you. I don't remember the length of my blades (I think they were 13" from the tip of the tie), but a simple calculation would be to subtract your hole diameter from your finished dresden diameter then divide that number by 2. 28-5 = 23 (24 if you use 4"hole). half of that is 11.5"(12"). Remember to add seam allowances. Draw it out on paper or cut paper with your dimensions just to be sure. Hope this helps.
